Fabulous Meal at Fire & Stone
half term day trip to London gave us the
opportunity to try out Fire & Stone Restaurant
in Covent Garden. It was extremely easy to
find and not far at all in fact it was very easy
walking distance from the tube stations and
immediately welcomed and taken to our tables.
The restaurant is large, a very clean and
contemporary design yet managing to create a
warm and appealing atmosphere.
arrived it was not very busy but as we ate our
meal the restaurant filled up with lots of
guests. There were a great mix of
families, couples, work colleagues or friends.
aware that there was plenty of space at the
tables to allow for children. The
children's menu is part of a booklet with lots
of lovely activities for them to do whilst
having the meal. Fire & Stone have teamed
up with My Daddy Cooks Nick Coffer to bring
about a slightly different concept for pizza.
I was interested to see there is a FIshfinger
pizza which seems strange but does actually fit
in very well. There is plenty of choice of
toppings or pasta plus the child gets a dessert
and a drink all for £5.95. I loved that
the activity booklet includes the recipe for the
Tiffin Cake which is the pudding. I do
believe we will have to try this out for
ourselves. Heavenly divine.
our drinks and continued to peruse the menu.
We did not feel rushed but very much catered
for. The menu has an incredible range of
starters and main courses so we did struggle to
chose. I loved that the pizzas are
inspired by different continents so you were
able to appreciate the theme your pizza toppings
may arrive at.
us chose Mozzarella Garlic bread to start and
one had crisp fried breaded baby mozzarella.
These all arrived and looked delicious.
Perhaps the staff were a little over zealous in
asking how everything was as it was quite often
throughout the meal that at least two people
would do the rounds asking.
my children chose the Naples - cheese and
tomato- pizza which looked really very
My husbands Pizza was called a London which was
topped with Mozzarella, tomato sauce, crispy
bacon, Cumberland sausage, roasted field
mushrooms, free range egg and chives.
He chose not to have the egg which was dealt
with with no fuss at all. I had a Texas -
Barbecue sauce, mozzarella, barbecued rump
steak, roasted red onions, roasted field
mushrooms and sun-dried tomato salsa which
I had on the side. I chose to go thinner
and crispier too on mine which came out
polished off their meals with great gusto whilst
we talked about the Imperial War Museum we had
visited during the day and the show Wicked we
were going to that night. I loved that the
table has enough room for us all to sit
comfortably and that our legs were not all
entwined as often happens at pizza places.
Texas pizza was really so yummy. I was a
bit worried as it had bbq sauce on and that
could have been a bit iffy but I was reassured
it wasn't too bad and that I could have the
salsa on the side in case I didn't want it on
the pizza which was so helpful.
- so much choice but in the end we decided to
have the Sweet Slider -
The slider offers Fire &Stone’s favourite
desserts in smaller, more manageable sizes. The
five mini desserts are served on a rustic board
and are an ideal sharing option. Five of
the scrumptious desserts have been included on
the slider menu, from the Banoffee Pie pizza,
nut Florentines, almond biscotti to the gooey
chocolate brownies, allowing everyone to enjoy a
never tried a sweet pizza before but it is
definitely worth trying - The Banoffee pie pizza
is a heavenly dessert is made from a sweet pizza
base with banoffee sauce, freshly sliced bananas
and Vanilla Ice Cream! Shame I had to
share it between us all.
also impressed because our food did turn up
looking like pictures I had seen. I've
included our photo of the Slider and the 'menu'
one. I think that's a pretty good
very much recommend visiting Fire & Stone.
They have some great lunch time offers such as
lunch for £4.95 (pizza, pasta or salad) and
another offer I have seen was 2 pizza for £10.
Along with the children's menu I think this
would make a great place to eat whilst
experiencing London whether you are a local or a
not - If you aren't visiting London it is not a
problem - there are some other Fire & Stone
Restaurants around the UK too.
